Happy Pink Saturday

My first share is a cute little key chain card holder. I ran across this blog and she had a tutorial for them so of course I had to make one. So fun and so easy to make and you know I had to make mine Pink. What nice little gifts these would make and put a gas card inside or a gift card or cash or even just a little card or note that says I love you.

I made mine a little different than she did. I added some felt fun stuff and beads. Also I used a snap where she used Velcro. My first time attaching a snap, I was proud of myself. I was always afraid to apply a snap, thought I would mess up my project I guess... but it turned out perfect.

The snap, it was a snap..... ha ha too easy to do.
This is a BOM from here if you would like to join in on the fun of making these blocks. She also has a shabby rose BOM that I just now got started on so maybe I will have one done next week to show. Yep.... it's pink too.

Oh I almost forgot about this one. This picture is not very good, terrible lighting I guess.

There is a tutorial for this cute little needle keeper over here. Again easy and fun to make and yes I got to practice my snap again, love it. Snap snap snap!

Anyway here is the inside of it. Kind of wish I would have used pink felt but that's ok.... sure I will make another one soon.

and all closed up with a snap.... can you tell I now love snaps?

Thank you so much for visiting and remember don't forget to go over to

and say hi to Beverly, our wonderful host of Pink Saturday.

I'm not sure if I will be here next Saturday or not, Hubby is having a full knee replacement on Tuesday so I will be pretty busy taking care of him and playing catch up on my customer quilts. My machine has been in MO for repairs for the past 3 weeks. I get it back today. I have missed it so much but have gotten a lot of stuff done that I wanted to do but also felt guilty at the same time since I have customer quilts waiting. There really was nothing I could do about it but wait for it to get back to me. All of my customers have been very understanding about the whole thing so that made it easier. So if you don't see or hear from me for a few weeks you will know I am taking care of my hubby and catching up on customer quilts. I will do my best to try and post and read some blogs but I can't promise.

Please think good thoughts for Hubby's surgery.


Have a wonderful weekend.

Saying for today.
"Most people are about as happy as they make up their minds to be"

  8. Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

    Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.

    You are SO talented ☺
